A man has been charged following the alleged stabbing of another man during a domestic disturbance at a Cootharaba residence last week.

It will be alleged that just after 12am on September 17 an argument occurred between a 41-year-old man and a 60-year-old man who are known to each other.

It is further alleged that during the argument the 60-year-old man armed himself with a knife and assaulted the 41-year-old man, causing a significant wound to his stomach.

The 41-year-old man managed to leave the scene in a vehicle before being located by emergency services a short distance away. He was transported to Sunshine Coast University Hospital with critical injuries. His current condition is stable.

A 27-year-old woman known to the men was also located at the residence with serious facial injuries and a non-life-threatening wound to her back. She was transported to hospital and has since been discharged.

Investigations are ongoing into how her injuries were sustained.

A 60-year-old Cootharaba man was last night arrested and charged with acts intended to maim.

He is due to appear in Maroochydore Magistrates Court today (September 22).
